  1. Oh Scum got discounts on Homing Missiles too? I thought it was just mods. Friggin' NASTY!
  2. Fel weeps quietly in the corner.
  3. I know we were tired of toilet seats dominating the scene, but this is not what I had in mind.
  4. What is best in X-Wing? Roll red dice out of your enemies' firing arcs, see them stressed and unable to k-turn before you, and hear the lamentations of their green dice.
  5. Re-rolling on X-Wing D8s also tends to produce the same result. This is because they are simply picked up and dropped, and rotate along one axis. Ask for opponents to give the dice a thorough shake if you are forcing them to reroll.
  6. And so the 25th of May became Gunboat Day, and people decorated trees with Concussion Missiles and destroyed X-Wings...
  7. This is not a spoiler, it's a fake. You think this is a professionally posed product thumbnail? This is what a Hot Wheels product thumbnail looks like. From the same webstore. The image is clearly photoshopped. Smudging everywhere, colour contamination, multiple recompression artefacts... I could go on.
  8. Also: There Are Some Conveniently Laid Out Crates There So It Means A Gunfight Is About To Happen Thinking back, Diablo was probably one of the first hand-holding games. None of the enemies there really had the power to kill you unless you wandered into a too high-level area (only really possible with Diablo II) and the most common way of dying was death by being too lazy to go back to town for potions.
  9. My pants just went hyperspace.
  10. Indeed, I agree they are not incompetent. To run a company is hard. Winning the Star Wars licence was a major accomplishment for FFG, and to achieve such massive growth for a game in this kind of ultra-competitive market speaks volumes. Heck, their own IP creation (the Imperial Raider) has been picked up by Battlefront II, instead of EA just making something new.
  11. That is pure ad hominem and uncalled for, even in jest.
  12. I shared it with my local gaming group, and they agree on a lot of things you bring up.
  13. Right now I don't have a stick which is why I slammed into the transport (mouse control For Teh Lose). I had a 4-button joystick when I had TIE Fighter the first time around.
  14. The best bit about May the 4th was buying TIE Fighter on Steam. Now I can Gunboat again, 20 years later...
  15. The main reason X-Wing has managed to penetrate the Married Life barrier.
